Recent Drive: 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X

The tenth iteration of the now-legendary Lancer Evolution is available with either a five-speed manual transmission or a newly developed twin-clutch unit similar to Volkswagen's revolutionary DSG transmission. We recently drove both at an Arizona racetrack, and not only were our laps faster in the twin-clutch cars, they were more fun. The ultra-aggressive Super Sport automatic mode was so smart, in fact, that we even bypassed the paddle shifters. The end of the clutch pedal may not be near, but it's certainly closer.
